This is my second post, I'm still learning. After getting my first microscope, I've just started going through my coins, and I believe I have found my first DDO. Notice what looks to me to be spreading on the date and the S, LIBERTY,TRUST, and somewhat on GOD. If I am wrong, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

I don't see the doubling. I am mostly posting to bring it back so you get some better information.

This coin is quite worn from circulation [which flattens out all the elevated planes] making them look wider. It is extremely tough to attribute/verify coins in this condition. Your best bet is to look at examples of known DDs and find matching markers [such as the MM position].

It doesn't appear to be a DD to me. The spreading on the S is typical of that style [MMS-5]. http://www.varietyvista.com/01b%20L...20Styles.htm

I would recommend using a loupe for inspecting coins and the microscope for taking pics after you find something interesting with the loupe.

Nice pics [focused, cropped and oriented].

Many of these 1940's DDs are class VI which have certain characteristics such as [but not limited to]: "ski-sloped" E of WE and fat 9 on the date. And some of the 44's have mangled verticals on the 4's.

Those who know what's best for us, must save us from ourselves.

Homer: There are three ways to find doubled dies: the right way, the wrong way, and the MaxPower way.

Bart: Isn't that the wrong way?

Homer: yes, but it's faster.

(No offense intended, just love a good Simpsons reference)

The Y in LIBERTY and the T in TRUST were 2 of the main things that stood out to me.

I'm just seeing a flattening of the devices from normal circulation.

Circulation flattening. No premium on this, sorry. Still worth the 3 cents wholesale rate for Wheaties.

But guess what? It is a DDO. Note the '44' on the date? I don't see it listed on the site. But the '44' is showing a DDO.
